Top drivers get up to 7% cash back on gas with Lyft Direct

We’re giving a big boost to the cashback rewards you earn when you pay for gas with Lyft Direct*. Starting Sep. 28, drivers can get up to 7% cash back depending on their Lyft Rewards** tier. The higher your tier, the more you’ll save, at any gas station that accepts Mastercard. 

We’re making this change as the temporary $0.55 fuel surcharge comes to an end. We know gas prices are a daily concern, and we’re committed to introducing new ways for you to save at the pump. 

Earning cash back is easy

Saving is simple. All you have to do is pay for gas with a Lyft Direct debit card at a gas station that accepts Mastercard. And you get paid out instantly. 

Here’s a peek at the rewards by tier: 

  • Platinum: 7% cash back

  • Gold: 3% cash back

  • Silver: 2% cash back

  • All cardholders: 1% cash back

Plus, you get up to 1% more back on gas at select locations with Mastercard® Easy Savings—it’s automatically linked to your Lyft Direct account.

Update: as of February 1, 2024, Elite status drivers will earn 10% cash back on gas.

Save even more with Upside

Most drivers can get even more cash back through our partnership with Upside***—up to $0.32/gallon back at eligible locations. And for a limited time Gold and Platinum drivers can unlock higher savings. 

Just link your Lyft Direct card to your Lyft Rewards account. Then you’ll stack rewards and automatically get cash back with both.
